Every little girl needs a sundress for the summer, and what could be more summery than a sundress knit in a beautiful butter-yellow cotton? The bottom of the dress features a picot hem and a delicate eyelet-and-cable pattern.

Show off your cabling skills with this felted bag that is easier than it looks! A slip-stitch cable floats on top of a bed of variegated garter stitch. Only one color is knit on each row, so there are no bobbins to manage. And felting conceals all your mistakes, so no need to worry if your cabling isn’t perfect.
This generously-sized market bag is big and sturdy enough to hold all your shopping finds. The bag features a square garter-stitch bottom, stockinette sides, and a lacy mesh cable pattern. The hemp yarn is incredibly durable. This is a bag that will last for many years!

I glanced at it and almost passed by, because it looks like an intricate lace pattern. Lo and behold! It has hidden cable crossings! Don’t be scared off...
